The above list is generated based on WEEKEND rate, and it is an estimation based on the current market rate. Honestly, there is no “standard amount” you need to adhere to. Ultimately, it is a reflection of your relationship to the couple that is the deciding factor.
Truth be told, as the Chinese love to say it- red packet is considered to be a symbol of luck, life and happiness. It is usually given during auspicious occasions such as Chinese New Year or wedding. It is a gift of blessings to the newlyweds, to congratulate them and wish them joy.
We could not emphasize this enough- DO NOT TREAT THIS AS A COMPETITION.
We have seen people who compares the amount, who devalues one another, who feels that people who gave more is “atas” and people who does not- “xia suay”. It honesty it does not matter at all!
Always remember, regardless the amount that is given to the newlywed, it should be given with sincerity and a heart full of blessings.
